I've been to the Yale campus in New Haven CT once, and really loved the architecture, but didn't delve inside; this might be worth a road trip! (Though the photo of the outside of the Center show a seriously ugly building {wry grin}.) I love the detail on the dress - embroidered sea monsters, yet! - and the suggestion that aspects of the dress were a nod to a period scandal.

 

And only the woman was hanged. Uh-huh.

Only the non-noble woman was hanged; the noble one was pardoned. Not that that's an improvement!
